Day number nineteen

A travel blog entry by travel2gether



No photos today, just a driving day. We are using our "free night" with Choice Hotels. Not bad digs for the price.

Shortly after we left Dallas this morning we began to see green fields that were not irrigated. A little too flat for these hillbillies.

Not sure if we will check out Memphis as we are not big Elvis fans. …

... head out to Beale Street and start at Memphis Rock and Blues Museum. This is a very interesting museum and we learn a lot. Did not know how important Memphis was in the 50's and 60's and 70's shaping Black Blues music and transforming it into multiracial Rock music. We are 2 hours in the museum and it is well worth the $12. We find out that Beale Street was where Black Sharecroppers went to hang out ...

... evening we were really just exploring Beale street. We didn’t really go into any bars or clubs, as they all charge a cover fee, but we did get some beers and just wandered up and down the street, listening to the music coming from all different places. Earlier that day at Graceland we asked a mother and daughter to take a picture of us, and lo and behold, we ran into them again on Beale street. The daughter had moved there and was living there, so she gave us ...

... ever tasted! Alex and Eli were not the only ones who appreciated the southern delicacies... Zozo was not sleeping through this meal! She pushed aside the well loved kale and corn Cheerios in favour of baby-bite-sized beef brisket! After dinner we took a stroll down Beale street while sipping bourbon and coke and listening to the live music pouring out of every second bar. Then another early night before hitting the road for Arrowhead State Park for our first camping ...

    Decent Stay at Affordable Rate

    from

    We had a very pleasing stay at this hotel. Rate is very reasonable for the value that we received. The hotel has a heated indoor pool that was very nice. We are very satisfied with the cleanliness of the room. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed are stay even though we were just passing thru.

    For a nice stay and a resonable price, I will definitely be back and stay here.

    New owners and convenient to everything in Memphis

    from

    After reading these comments my wife and i were planning on canceling our reservation. I called and spoke to a reservationist and explained my concern. She made it clear that the hotel was purchased by new owners and there is constant improvements made since October . We decided to stay on her word, she said if we were not pleased we could cancel our reservation without penalty. We were checked it to room 311 we were very pleased with accommodations the hotel had a heated indoor pool that was just redone with a Jacuzzi, Free wireless in all pool and common areas business center in lobby.

    Horrible hotel

    from

    The first room we were checked into was very moldy and mildewy, we were then moved to another room on the third floor. This room had exposed electrical outlets. When we came back from dinner the elevator was out of service, and half of the washers were out of service in the laundry area. I can't believe this hotel is rated as a three star hotel, I wouldn't even give it half a star.

    Watch the hype!!

    from

    After two rooms was finally put into one of the "showrooms". Black mold on the shower ceiling, dresser was broken down (appeared someone had jumped on it), phone cables hanging out of wall, and air conditioner could only get cooling to 83 degrees. If they would had told me the place was the old Holiday Inn I would have never made reservations there. Too much price for poor quality rooms. Guest services was very competent, but had little to work with.

    Plenty of hospitality and value for your money

    from

    We recently stayed at the memphis plaza hotel. Upon check-in we were warmly greeted by the front desk clerk and quickly checked in. We also appreciated the fact that there was a indoor heated pool and hot tub.

    The rooms were standard but a great deal for your money and clean.

    I would not ever hesistate to stay at this hotel again in the future.

    THANKS MEMPHIS PLAZA!!!

    Really Nasty

    from

    The only thing good about this place was the staff.....they were VERY nice. Otherwise, the place was filthy, smelled bad, the beds were dirty and damp, stains everywhere, no sports bar as claimed, halls were dark, hoodlums loitering in the parking lot, telephones in the room were ripped apart and all the buttons were missing, bathroom was disgusting

    Not all that bad, but not the Hilton

    from

    My husband and infant daughter stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. I had found this hotel on a combo flight and hotel thru Yahoo Travel. Upon arrival there was only one desk clerk working and about 10 of us ready to check in on a holiday weekend. I felt really bad for her (Lakisha was her name I think) She finally got us checked in and was super friendly. Our room was very average. Not the most sparkling clean, but it was OK. The nice thing there was the pool area. We swam both days. and found it to be very nice. Hot tub too. Also, the staff was friendly to us, just slow with regards to requests for extra towels. I finally had to go to the front desk and stand there along with another lady while they got us more towels. It seemed like they were very understaffed. We did not go in the lounge, so I can't report on that. We were on the 3rd floor and our pop machine did not work. Ice machine did. Maid that we saw every day was very very nice.

    Very Unpleasant experience

    from

    Our party picked this place on our recent trip because of the advertisement they had running in a local Memphis coupon magazine.

    Don't even consider it!

    from

    This place is an absolute dump! Bad smells, broken down old furniture and fixtures, dim lighting, dirty, dirty dirty.........I would have rather slept in the car. If it is any indication, while we were checking in two separate guests appeared who had apparantly just checked in and viewed the facility and their rooms, turned in their keys and left saying that the place was awful!.....well we should have taken the hint.......I really can't say enough about how terrible this place is.......it was disgusting!

    Holiday Inn should be ashamed!

    from

    We just got back from a business trip to Memphis and chose to spend the night in this hotel because of its convenient location. While we didn't expect to be in the lap of luxury we did expect to have a clean room. The place is all scruffy and dilapidated. Our sheets were old and stained, the upholstery on the chair was filthy, and the bathroom was nasty. My husband and I went to the "lounge" for a cocktail before leaving for dinner and it was a joke. Twenty or so bottles of liquor and a few beaten up tables- it looked like a bar in the basement of a house. I watched the person behind the bar make a marguerita for a guest- she poured out Popov vodka and commercial bottled mix (I thought this was a tequila drink??) into a glass and put the oldest, most discolored lime that I've ever seen on the rim. The drink fit right in with this hotel's condition. There's a Drury Inn within spitting distance of this Holiday Inn, and it looked clean, updated and welcoming. Spend the $30 extra dollars and stay there.
